Dinesh Karthik 1st T20 Masterclass – Why Karthik is now certainty for India T20 WC Squad? Karthik has over the last couple of years developed a reputation as a finisher. His resurgence started with IPL 2022.
IPL 2022: He had a fine IPL 2022 season with the Royal Challengers Bangalore. He finished with the best strike rate in the tournament and was recalled into the India side.
Great Indian Team Comeback : Since his return, he has time and again chipped in with cameos when given the chance. Friday was no different for the 36-year-old. He has scored 167 Runs in 11 Matches since return to the Indian squad. His Strike RATE is above 150 and he has stayed not out on 6 of the 11 ocassions.
Karthik aims to play the t20 World Cup and is in the team management’s plans but a severe competition of places means that it would be a tough call to make.
The RCB star is making every opportunity count. Captain Rohit Sharma, Head coach Rahul Dravid and the selection committee can’t ignore Karthik now for T20 World Cup in Australia.
